  • Activity Calendar Changed On Website

    There have been recent changes in the school calendar on the USD 297 website. The old link to the "Activities Calendar" was located on the menu on the right-hand side of the Home page of the website. The "Activities Calendar" link was removed on June 3. 

    To access the current (and future) school calendar, use the "rSchoolToday Activities Calendar" link on the right-hand side of the Home page. (You will need to scroll down a bit farther than where the old link was located.)

    This calendar will have a slightly different appearance, but you should be able to easily find information regarding school activities. The calendar has weekly and monthly views. More information about the activities can be viewed by clicking on the the event.

    There are several reasons for this change:

    1) With many changes in activities throughout the year, it was often difficult to keep the website updated correctly. After changes were made by administrators, those changes would need to be relayed to me for updating on the website. For various reasons, this was not always an efficient process. Now all changes will be made by the ADs on rSchoolToday, and those changes will be immediately reflected on the school website.

    2) Avoids duplication of work in preparing both calendars for publication and updating.

    3) ALL Northwest Kansas League schools will be using rSchoolToday for scheduling purposes.
